Loaded Steak Quesadillas are a savory and satisfying Tex-Mex dish that combines the delicious flavors of grilled steak, melted cheese, and a variety of mouthwatering fillings. This crowd-pleasing favorite is perfect for a quick and hearty meal or as a delightful snack for any occasion.
To craft these indulgent quesadillas, you’ll need a selection of key ingredients. The star of the show is tender, thinly sliced grilled steak, which brings a hearty and savory dimension to the dish. You’ll also require large flour tortillas, which serve as the perfect vessel to hold the delicious fillings. The “loaded” aspect comes from a variety of flavorful fillings. You can choose from a range of options, such as sautéed bell peppers and onions, diced tomatoes, sliced black olives, or even jalapeños for a touch of heat. Additionally, shredded cheese, often a blend of cheddar and Monterey Jack, is crucial to achieve that melty, gooey goodness.
The preparation of loaded steak quesadillas is straightforward. Start by grilling the steak to your preferred level of doneness, and then slice it thinly. The vegetables can be sautéed to soften and develop their flavors, adding a colorful and textural contrast to the quesadillas. Next, you’ll assemble the quesadillas. Lay out a large tortilla and layer it with a portion of steak, sautéed vegetables, diced tomatoes, black olives, jalapeños (if desired), and a generous amount of shredded cheese.
Fold the tortilla in half to create a semi-circle, enclosing all the delicious fillings. Heat a skillet or griddle and cook the quesadilla until the tortilla becomes crispy, and the cheese melts into a gooey, savory delight. You can also add a touch of oil to the skillet for extra crispiness. Once cooked to perfection, the quesadilla is sliced into wedges, creating a perfect portion for devouring.
